GIVEAWAY: Thankful To My Amazing Readers!!!

I admit it, I have been overwhelmed with your support for Operation: Endgame. It's been an amazing whirlwind since it officially released in September, exceeding even my wildest dreams for sales, and I have you all to thank for that!!


(above is the screen capture from my highest ranking on Amazon that I caught.)

With this week being Thanksgiving and the fact that I am gearing up for the release of book #2, Operation: Endeavor, I thought it was time to give you a little back. I don't know if you've ever noticed, but since I self-publish, I actually have a publisher's mark on my book...

a fleur de lis.

As a result, I began a search for fleur de lis items to giveaway without a whole lot of luck. I mentioned it to my mom, and she went to town.... She found all the items below and I am giving it all away to you!

Included is:

  • insulated lunch bag

  • metal hook

  • coin purse

  • serving spoon

  • notepad set

  • wine stopper

  • magnets

  • printed ARC of Operation: Endeavor

All you have to do to qualify is comment. The giveaway for the fleur de lis items is restricted to US only...just because all of this weighs too much to ship internationally. Included in the fleur de lis prize will be a PRINT ADVANCE COPY of Operation: Endeavor...yes, that's a month earlier than everyone else will see it!

I am also giving away TWO OTHER PRINT ADVANCE COPIES of

Operation: Endeavor!!!

These books can go to either a US or INT'L winner. Just comment for your chance to win and please let me know in the comments if you are US or INT'L. Whoever wins the books, will receive it a full month before it becomes available for sale! These are Advanced Reader Copies (ARC) of this book, so they aren't perfect, but if you win, you get it earlier than everyone else so that makes up for it, right?

All winners will be drawn on Wednesday Nov. 28th. Please leave your email in the comments so I have a way to contact you. And PLEASE be sure to specify if you are US or INTL.


I'm about to send out e-copies to reviewers. If you are a reviewer with a blog who would like to review Operation: Endeavor, please email me at snowchris_01@yahoo.com with your blog name and preferred format.


Did you know I have an Author Facebook page?? Come over and "like" me! Please.... Tell you what, if I hit 500 likes on that page, I will give away 2 MORE PRINT ARCS of Operation: Endeavor to my fans over there. This part of the contest ends December 15th.

Please spread the word!!!

  14. I noticed the Fleur de Lis right away, since I'm originally from Louisiana. Fleur de Lis is just part of our life. Last Christmas we couldn't help pick on my cousin's stepdaughter's boyfriend. It was the first time he had been to Louisiana. When they were out shopping he kept noticing the Fleur de Lis all over. After coming across yet another one he said "There's those signs again". We still laugh with him about that. But we do give him credit because he decided to buy her a beautiful Fleur de Lis necklace.

  15. Hey Christi
    My sister ( Kim Muhl) kept telling me all about your book, and to be honest i am not a romance novel kind of person, but i did finally break down and bought your book on my nook. I am suprised im actually enjoying it ( still reading it). So i can't wait until the next book!!! By the way i LOVE the pics of the YUMMY guys you post on your fb page. Where do i get me some of them? ;+)

  16. congratulations, I am always happy to hear of authors success. It must be a long, tough road to get published, and to have good sales. What a great mum you have. INTERNATIONAL. annpa@gmail.com

  17. I have to say I just finished Operation:Endgame and really enjoyed it. It was a lovely balance of romance and suspense, I found my self trying to figure out what was going to happen next all the way to the end. I can only imagine whats in store for Chris and Colton. I'm really looking forward to reading Endeavor. Great Job! :D

    P.S. I live in the U.S.

  18. I am a great lover of books and constantly on the lookout for new authors. Amazon recommended your first book and I loved it! Just by happenstance I stumbled upon your Facebook page, so now I can find out when the new ones are released. Cannot wait for the rest.

    Ever since I got my Kindle Fire I've been finding new authors that I might not have ever read. I'm so glad that you're one of the ones that I discovered! I'm really looking forward to OPERATION: ENDEAVOR. I already love the guys and gals you've introduced to us and I think the fellas have met their matches with these ladies. I can't wait to see how they each find their HEA! :)
